Safety, Paul Rossi

The Machine Shop Coordinators will conduct a meeting next week regarding the lead in the machine shops.

An injury was reported last week at sector 18. A resident user's left index finger was caught in the motorized positioner assembly. Please be cautious when using machinery to avoid injuries.

The compressed gas cylinder storage continues to be an issue. Please be more cautious. Ensure oxidizers and flammables are not within 20 ft. of the cylinders and cages are empty of debris. Also, make sure small cylinders are removed from the storage cages and placed in individual lab areas until there is a solution for storing them in the cages.

Thank you for submitting the non-NRTL inventory list.

The next CAT Chat meeting will be held on Monday, December 18, 2006.
